The pandemic that is COVID-19 has turned the world upside down. While it’s true that the economy has been impacted, and who knows what that means long term, especially for small business’s, international travel and face to face education, i would say the thing that’s been impacted the most has been relationships.
Over my next 3 post’s i will be writing about how lockdown and isolation has impacted our relationships. The 3 areas i will be covering are:
- Our relationship with God
- Our relationship with Ourselves and others
- Our relationship with Work
What has this time done to those relationships, Could God be giving us glimpses of how those relationships could be better and what choices can Christians be making to live differently in those relationships, especially after restrictions have been lifted?
So if your relationships with these 3 things have been effected during this crazy time, and its caused you a bit of anxiety or hope, my prayer is that you will allow God to speak into this troubled time and guide you into a direction, one that maybe none of us saw coming.
Lord God, if we are honest, this time has been tough, and for many of us a season of life we would rather forget. We have been isolated from church, family and friends, some of us have lost work and for others we don’t really know what’s next. But you do, help us to remember that even when stuff like this is happening, you can do some pretty awesome things. Give us strength and wisdom, strength to hold on to the hope we have been given and to continue to trust and and abide in Christ during this time, and wisdom to know how to live and not just survive in all the areas of our lives, especially in our relationships. – Amen
